    Baked sweet potato fries

    What can I do to make these as crispy as possible? I'm guessing you've got to get some of the moisture out. Made some tonight with a nice spicy rub on them. They tasted great but would like them crispier. I baked them at 350 degrees for 20 minutes a side.

    Here's a previous post on this: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum...e-french-fries

    I haven't tried any of the suggestions, but plan to this weekend. Good luck.

    You could dehydrate them. Basically this is like roasting them at a low temperature, but you can drive out more moisture since you cannot burn them. I think you would want to bake them for a least a few minutes first though.

    I agree with you. When I eat sweet potato home fries I am satisfied for hours.

    I used to be an apple freak but now that I've found sweet potatoes I almost don't care about fruit anymore.

    Dehydrating is great, however you have to par boil them 1st, or else you get suckie dry chips that are not very appetizing. & it take all night. I dehydrated cooked spagetti squash as an experiment, turned out pretty good. Like spiderweb crackers. no seasonong. kind of a little sweet(only if your primal) CW's would never stomach them plain. I have never gotten sweet potato fries crisp (not burnt) by baking them.

    I've double-fried them in lard before, and they came out pretty crispy and very delicious

    i haven't had luck frying them the same way as regular potatoes - it's like they never get crispy; just more & more soggy. I've had luck getting them to crisp up baking them on a rack over top a cookie sheet, though, so maybe give that a try?
